Loose Specimen Card Review
If you drop it on the empty board, it’s a 5 mana 6/6. But would any deck actually want a vanilla 5 mana 6/6? Exactly, I don’t think so.
If you have actual minions on the board, then this absolutely sucks, it’s unplayable.
So in order for this to work, you need minions that actually benefit from getting damaged. For example, if you have Acolyte of Pain on the board, then this might make sense. Or, I don’t know, Warrior minions such as Armorsmith or Frothing Berserker, but assuming that you have enough other minions so they won’t likely die. Maybe you can use it to activate Blackhowl Gunspire? But the thing is, the card usually dies right after it’s played, because if you play it, your opponent knows that you have lots of ways to activate it.
Maybe use it in Egg/Bomb deck to sort of activate the Deathrattles while putting a big body on the board?
It might not be AS bad as it first seems, but it still doesn’t seem good. You would need a really specific deck that wants to damage/kill own minions for it to be good, but even then the 5 mana cost makes it hard to combo with stuff immediately.
Card rating: 4/10
